2385608 - Revenue Recognition: AccrualMeth. Assignment For Fixed Price Project Incomplete

Symptom

You performed a Revenue Recognition Run which ended in error. You get the error message: Doc.Itm XX/YY (XX is the Sales Order ID and YY is the Sales Order Item ID): AccrualMeth. Assignment For Fixed Price Project Incomplete.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Cost and Revenue work centre.
  2. Go to the Revenue Recognition sub view in the Periodic Tasks view.
  3. Search for Revenue Recognition run: ABC (ABC is the ID of the Revenue Recognition Run) and select it.


The run ended in error.

  1. Click View, this takes you to the List of Logs.
  2. Select one of the logs and then click View.
  3. Navigate to the Processed with Errors tab.
  4. Select the Sales Document Item XX/YY.


The error message is Doc.Itm XX/YY: AccrualMeth. assignment for fixed price project incomplete.

Cause

You have changed the Accrual Method for the Sales Order Item from 108- Recognize using cost-to-cost project PO to another Accrual method. But in certain cases, the instance of this Accrual Method 108- Recognize using cost-to-cost project PO does not get removed correctly and causes the error.

You can check this as below:

  1. Go to the Cost and Revenue work centre.
  2. Go to the Sales Document Items view.
  3. Search and select Sales Document XX/YY.
  4. Click on the Edit Manual Revenue Recognition Data button to open Percentage of Completion.


You can see that for the associated Project PQR (PQR is the ID of the Project) there is one or more lines for either both or just one Set of Books with Accrual method as 108 - Recognize using cost-to-cost project POC.
You can also see that no Sales Document Item is displayed for this erroneous line.

  1. Now go back to Sales Document Items view.
  2. Click on advanced search.
  3. Enter the Project ID as PQR and click Go.

There is only one Sales Order Item  XX/YY.

If there is more than one Sales Order Item, you need to check all of these for the mentioned issue.

Resolution

As a work around you can perform a dummy change to solve this issue. The dummy change can be done as follows:

  1. Go to the Cost and Revenue work centre.
  2. Go to the Sales Document Items view.
  3. Search and select the Sales Order Item XX/YY.
  4. Click on the Reassign button to Reassign Accrual Method.
  5. Change the Accrual Method back to 108 - Recognize using cost-to-cost project POC for both of the Set of Books and click Ok.
  6. Re-select the Sales Order Item  XX/YY.
  7. Again click on the Reassign button to Reassign Accrual Method.
  8. Change the Accrual Method back to the correct Accrual Method for both of the Set of Books and click Ok.

To make sure that the correction has worked, you can check the Sales Order Item by clicking on the Edit Manual Revenue Recognition Data button to open Percentage of Completion.

You can also perform a Revenue Recognition Run in Test Mode to check the results.

If the issue persists kindly open an incident with explicit permission for backend correction.
